About the Game

It’s been a generation since you vanquished the evil that plagued the Land of Ehb, and now…a new menace has awakened. In Dungeon Siege II, the sequel to the best-selling RPG from Gas Powered Games, you will be called on to again wield sword and spell to save the world from a growing abomination many years in the making.
A thousand years ago, the crusaders of Azunai crossed swords with the legions of Zaramoth in the final battle of a century-long rebellion. As the tyrannical god Zaramoth struck the final blow through Azunai’s trembling shield, the earth shook. In that moment, the forces of magic were unchained, and both armies were consumed in a brilliant cataclysm that stretched for leagues across the Plain of Tears. Only a scarred wasteland remained as final testament to the First Age of Man.
And for a millennium, magic has continued to spread to the farthest corners of the world, freely flowing to any who would command it. But the tide of magic has begun to wane, heeding instead the call of an ancient legacy. From the Plain of Tears a new heir beckons, and with each day his strength grows. Consuming those who submit, eradicating those who resist. With none to oppose his ascendance, the circle will be complete, and an ancient age will begin anew.
What fate will befall the Second Age of Man? The time for judgment is nigh.

What a beautiful game. Every now and then I run across a game that just nails its genre. The Age of Wonders series makes me feel that way for example, and more recently, Mark of the Ninja -- a game that's just an absolute pleasure to play because the makers lavished attention on it to make it a joy, and the player wants it to never come to an end. Dungeon Siege II is one of those games.

Everything that makes a fantasy action strategy game fun to play is in this game -- gorgeous artwork, evocative soundtrack, user-friendly interface, fully customizeable characters, great gear, generous loot drops, secret rooms, interesting and complicated quests, and far more gold than you could possibly need. Dungeon Siege II is like Torchlight's older brother, just as likeable but more grown up. Well, as grown up as a fantasy romp can be.

I spent many hours playing this with multiple character builds before I got it on steam, lots of fun had. I bought the Dungeon Siege bundle x3 on steam expecting ease of use, functionality and no drama in getting it to work and sorting out CD keys and updates on multiple computers of my family...

Started game
Multiplayer disabled
Not cool.

I normally would give this a big thumbs up but the steam version has multiplayer disabled because the online servers are no longer in existence, the problem is that local/LAN has also been disabled along with that for no reason at all other than laziness I guess, because they just disabled the multiplayer menu button in the main menu.
Even when I played this by myself I used the multiplayer function so that I could use my characters when I wanted to play with friends and for certain features in the game host settings that were not in singleplayer.

So you are better off getting it somewhere else.

Having played through DS1/2 before a few years ago, I got this as part of a package deal (DS1,2,3) and didn't notice that it didn't include all the DLC/xpacs.

IMHO if you're going to play Dungeon Siege 1 or 2, you play it with all the DLC/xpacs. Even more so if you're going to play it in multiplayer, which simply doesn't work as is in the STEAM version.

If anything, they probably bundled this to get people into buying DS3, which is nothing like Dungeon Siege 1 or 2.

I like lots of things about DS2. I like that item shops are useful, that they tried to give your companions actual characters, and that the female models wear sensible armor. I liked the design of several boss fights, and the efforts they went to (in some areas, anyway) to disguise the basic linearity of the game.

Unfortunately, DS2 is one of those games where you had to buy the DLC to get the actual ending - DLC that doesn't seem to be on Steam. So this game gets to the climax and goes "HAHANOPE". Completely unsatisfying.

A game of my childhood. It's like one of those games you would just kill time on. Even if the graphics are not modern - the game is a classic and this game is one of the best RPG adventures. It would really suit some achievements for this game too, but I guess classic... stays classic.
